How Do I Keep The Home Clean? House Cleaning for Busy Moms

Like a lot of families in 2023, Rod and I make house cleaning a family affair, both here at Casa de Myers and at work. LOL see what we did there?!

But we know there are still plenty of Busy Moms out there with full plates, who take the lead role in taking care of their home and their families’ day-to-day needs. Since we’ve never met a mom who wasn’t looking for ways to improve their efficiency and find time for more enjoyable tasks; we’ve packed this week’s blog with time-saving house cleaning tips for busy moms.

New moms, single moms, working moms, and stay-at-home moms… this one’s for you! 

How do I keep the home clean

Five quick and easy house cleaning techniques to help you get some time back.

1. Multitask, but keep it a light duty.
Imagine accomplishing twice as much in a day? Cool, right! While you wait for your coffee to brew you can wipe down your kitchen counters. Or, start a load of laundry before you start some much needed family time. Then when you transition out of that family time, or take a quick break, you can switch it over. I love to fold a basket of fresh clean clothes in front of my favorite Netflix show, after my kids are in bed. It’s the perfect way to chill out and get points for keeping the house clean.
2. Establish an easy house cleaning routine

Have a simple cleaning routine and clean certain areas when it makes the most sense. Make your bed before you leave your room in the morning so it doesn’t stress you out at bedtime.  Get the kids to help you tidy up their mess before moving on to something new, so the mess doesn’t accumulate and overwhelm you later. Wipe down your shower walls right after you take a shower, why not?! They’re easier to clean when they are steamy!

3. Make cleaning a little more fun

Listen to music or podcasts while you clean: This can make cleaning more enjoyable and help pass the time. Try to listen to a meditation or a motivational podcast – but not something that needs to be watched as that would be distracting. This will help you to keep your deep focus on the task at hand and can motivate you all throughout the day.

4. Have multiples

The Laundry can be NEVER ENDING! It can be frustrating and time-consuming. Have multiple sets of sheets and towels so you don’t have to do laundry as often.

5. Freshen up your home effortlessly
Find ways to keep your home fresh that take no time or effort at all.  Plug in a diffuser and let the scent of your favorite essential oil blend make your home smell clean, fresh and welcoming.  Better yet, take an even more natural approach by bringing the clean scent of nature inside with potted flowers and plants. Not only do they smell great, they’re also known to help improve the air quality in your home.

To take care of the essential cleaning tasks that need to be done regularly. Think dusting, vacuuming, bathrooms, kitchens and more. When these tasks are off your list, you can focus on other tasks and maybe even save some time for yourself! 

House cleaning doesn’t have to be as hard as it sounds. Your housework doesn’t have to get in the way of caring for your family and enjoying life.

Dealing with Covid-19 Cleaning

Some have asked what we are doing to deal with Covid-19 cleaning needs. Here is what we are doing both as a business and a family. Please, please, please know to do your own research on how to proceed. This is only me sharing what we are doing to stay healthy. I am NOT a medical doctor.

1. Enforcing constant hand washing for 20 seconds or longer as per the CDC. Note: make sure you are actively washing your thumbs it is often forgotten because you just wash only your other part of your hands. Studies show most commonly missed parts of hands when washing is thumbs and back of hands. Covid-19 cleaning requires that you pay special attention to all areas of your hands.

2. I am reminding everyone to touch their face as little as possible. No rubbing noses and eyes.

3. Frequent washing of light switches, door knobs, desks, keyboards, kitchen table, your vehicle door handles and common areas especially in offices. ****especially your bathrooms. Beef up the amount of times you clean it. If you normally clean once a week, do covid-19 cleaning 2 times or 3 times a week.

4. Businesses should highly encourage employees to work from home or stay home if they have symptoms.

5. For our cleaners, we are using gloves for bathroom covid-19 cleaning.

6. Avoid high traffic areas when you can. Example: don’t fly if you don’t have to.

7. We are using hand sanitizers. When choosing the right hand sanitizer, make sure you choose the right one. It should have a minimum of 60% alcohol.

8. Use a alcohol based spray to clean….we use one with 91% alcohol base for wipes to clean counters and other high touch areas.

9. Stay home if you are sick.

10. Most of all, we are remaining calm and taking precautions just as if we were trying to avoid the flu.

As a company we keep all items clean and sanitized from home to home. We are always very careful because we value the health and cleanness of our clients homes and offices. Your home/business and families will remain our top priority as well as the health of our employees with every covid-19 cleaning and disinfecting we do..
